1. You let them sit shotgun.

2. You spoon them while you sleep.

3. You ask them about their day, and if they want to smoke pot on the couch and watch “Planet Earth.”

4. You don’t let them go skiing with just anyone.

5. You definitely don’t skimp on the tune. Full grindstone and shit.

6. Sometimes, you surprise them with flowers.

7. When you go into the bar, you place them next to the window where you can see them. Your friends are jealous of all the attention you give your skis, but, sorry, your friends don’t make you feel like you’re flying.

8. Next winter, you’re getting married. Invitations are in the mail.
